December 10th-- Snowman Soup

Hi Everyone, Practical Scrapper Kerri here, to bring you another great gift idea for our Christmas feature.  Today I'd like to share with you all my altered to go insulated coffee cups.  I found these to go cups at my local Joann's in their bargain bins for $2.50 each ( and I used my coupon to over the holiday to get another 20% off ).  These cups I made for my kids' teachers to go with the other little gift I made for them. 

These were super easy to make!  When I got the cups they had another piece of paper in them.  I traced them on my favorite paper (Crate Paper -Snow Day Collection) and embellished with the matching chipboard, cardstock cut outs, and cardstock borders.

Here's a look at just one of the cups up close. Next, I filled each cup with a package of hot chocolate mix, a bag of mini marshmallows, and added a Wilton peppermint swirl candy cane which you can see down below.

Finally, I made my little "snowman soup" tag.  Now, there are a couple of different poems out there for "snowman soup", but I picked the one I liked best and printed it out. Here's an up close picture of the tag which reads:

Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear it!
With freezing weather drawing near,
You'll need to warm the spirit!
So here's a little Snowman Soup
complete with stirring stick.
Add hot water, sip it slow,
It's sure to do the trick!

Again, these are super quick and easy gifts that are great for teachers, secret Santa exchanges, friends, or just anyone that you want warm their spirit this holiday season.  Thanks for stopping in and don't forget, only 14 more shopping days left, and we have 10 more days of ideas for you!
